George Washington in Our Family

George Washington lived 1732 – 1799. My family is not related to our first president. However, we do have several members named after George Washington. Our first president must have been a hero to these families.

I'd say you have more than a few family members named after George Washington! I find it amazing that you have so many.

The fact that most were pre-1880 shows the families had a high regard for our founding Fathers, I bet there are Andrew Jackson, Benjamin Franklin and others.

Yes, there were as future posts will show. Also Thomas Jefferson and James Monroe.
